enough about me

This Friday offers numerous wonderful exhibits. VSW presents artist and poet Jen Bervin to speak at the Black Mountain North Symposium at 2:30-4:00 PM at the Memorial Art Gallery. The Black Mountain North Symposium is a three-day conference and festival of the arts in Rochester, NY. It celebrates upstate New York’s experimental arts, whose lineage is partly traceable to the migration of artists and scholars from a radically innovative school situated in the hills of North Carolina from 1933 to 1957. Jen Bervin's work is so lovely, I assume she will be speaking about her new book The Desert. This book is made by her (hand) machine sewing over the text to reveal a found poem. (She made an edition of 40!)
